Lesson 108 A Course in Miracles
“To everyone I offer quietness,
To everyone I offer peace of mind,
To everyone I offer gentleness.”
Khalil Gibran Lebanese artist & poet (1883 – 1931)wrote mystical poetry collection “The Prophet” 1923
Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.
And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter and the sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.
Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself. Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love.
Say not, “I have found the path of the soul.” Say rather, “I have found the soul walking upon my path.” For the soul walks upon all paths. The soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed. The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals.
Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding. Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.
A favourite verse of mine – Footprints
One night I dreamed a dream.
As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
One belonging to me and one to my Lord.
After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
there was only one set of footprints.
This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.
“Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
You’d walk with me all the way.
But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me.”
He whispered, “My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you.”
White feathers – Sometimes when least expected, I have white feathers appear on the ground in front of me, and I believe it is spirit telling me that my loved ones are near.
I recently read an article written in the newspaper about Gloria Hunniford, and I thought I would leave this link here for those of you who would like to read the article.
2016 – This quote was first shown on my website in September 2009.
I had been clutter clearing in my office and I had come across these words which were given to me by a friend many, many years ago. It was attributed to Nelson Mandela but I had since found out that it was in fact written by Marianne Williamson who wrote the book “Return to Love”. I am showing this verse so that you may be inspired and walk forward in your life with new and/or renewed understanding.
For some reason the words have come back into my life for me to embrace and for others to read. I say, Oh, how the Universe works it is a Wonder to Behold!
Since putting this verse on my site I have received contact from people who found these words to be helpful at this specific time. It is always wonderful to get feedback, so thank you and long may you continue to visit my website where I hope you can find some words of comfort and joy, and maybe words to inspire you.
Our Deepest Fear By Marianne Williamson
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves. Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be.
You are a child of God.
Your playing small, Does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking, so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, As children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; It’s in everyone.
And as we let our own Light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we’re liberated from our own fear, Our presence automatically liberates others.
I am sending Love and light to you as you make your way on your journey, and remember …. It is not the end result that is the most important, it is the journey itself, so enjoy and learn from everything you experience.
2016 – Here I am writing this Verse again. I showed it on this page in 2011 and I think it is worth presenting again.
A Mantra for the New Age and for all Humanity – THE GREAT INVOCATION
From the point of Light within the mind of God
Let Light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.
From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men-
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the centre which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
I first shared this in October 2006. In 2016 I think it is worth reading again, and reminding us.
One day, there was a blind man sitting on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet and a sign that read: “I am blind, please help.”
A creative publicist was walking by and stopped to observe. He saw that the blind man had only a few coins in his hat. He dropped in more coins and, without asking for permission, took the sign and rewrote it.
He returned the sign to the blind man and left. That afternoon the publicist returned to the blind man and noticed that his hat was full of bills and coins.
The blind man recognized his footsteps and asked if it was he who had rewritten his sign and wanted to know what he had written on it.
The publicist responded: “Nothing that was not true. I just wrote the message a little differently.” He smiled and went on his way.
The new sign read: “Today is Spring and I cannot see it.”
Watching Oprah Winfrey and Iyanla Vanzant on Super Soul Sunday tv programme, and she reminded me of a Marianne Williamson’s Morning Prayer … I thought you might like it to read for yourself.
Excerpt of My Morning Prayer Ritual ~ (taken from “Meditations for a Miraculous Life” CD by Marianne Williamson)
This is the day that the Lord hath made… And I pray…
May I become the person God would have me be. That I may do what God would have me do.
Dear God, Where would you have me go,
What would you have me do,
What would you have me say and to who?
On this day and everyday, May the Light of God now pour forth upon me, Through every aspect & cell of my being, that I may be Light unto Others.
May where I walk & where I stand today be Holy Ground.
May every encounter…be a Holy Encounter.
I salute with Love everyone I will meet today.
Everyone I know and everyone I do not yet know.
I pour forth Light in front of me, Into every situation and every circumstance I will experience.
On this day,
May I be a servant of God, A teacher of God, A minister of God, Giving that which I wish to receive, Loving as I wish to be Loved, A natural conduit for the miracles of God, As I open my Heart to receive them, And to give them to others as well.
And thus may my day be blessed.
May I be blessed that I might be a blessing unto others.
Every situation shall be a lesson for for me, And for those with whom I am in contact. May I be my more Loving Self,
Teach me, God, how to Bless and no longer blame,
To Forgive and no longer judge,
To Be at Peace,
To be a Channel for your Love,
May myself, may this world,
May all living things be Blessed this precious day.
I send the Love and the Blessing and the Healing of God To all war torn regions of this world,
For those who are hungry, may they be fed,
For those who are sick, may they be healed,
For those who suffer, Dear God, comfort them,
To those who are unjustly treated, Help Dear God,
And use me as your vessel that I might help You help them.
Give Meaning to my Life, Health to my Body, And Graciousness to my Heart, On this day and everyday, May Your Will be Done, On Earth as it is in Heaven, For me and for all humankind. Amen.
Quotes from Caroline Myss
- “Always go with the choice that scares you the most, because that is the one that is going to require the most from you.”
- “You are afraid of your own empowerment as much as those around you are of you becoming empowered.”
- “Whenever you become empowered, you will be tested”
- “The Soul always knows what to do to Heal itself. The challenge is, to silence the Mind”
Quotes from Abraham
No matter what it is, if you really want it, and if you get out of the way of it, it will happen. It must be. It is Law. It can be no other way. It’s the way this Universe is established. If you want it and you relax, it will happen.
